Default My planned upgrades....again.

Please look at my current computer setup in my signature. My computer is still rather good, it has served me well for the last 19 months but I find its time I upgrade so I could play newer games decently and do things more efficiently. Firstly, I plan to either upgrade to either these two for graphics:

Radeon All In Wonder x800 XL AGP 256MB- 179.99$ Canadian

OR

EVGA Geforce 6600 GT 128MB- 165.99$ Canadian
link-http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1182887&CatId=880

For RAM, I'm thinking of buying 512 MB DDRRAM PC3200- 58.99$ Canadian
link-http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1430963&CatId=1304

What do you guys think I should do?

well, the first card is an all in wonder, meaning you get to watch tv and stuff on it too. I would go with www.newegg.com instead of that site, and also, you can get non all in wonder cards that are more for the money. The 6600gt isn't as good as the x800 by the way.

Precisely. So do you guys have any other suggestions for graphics or RAM?

And, secondly, how far up the AGP food chain is the X800 XL?
